A tribute to Tap dance

by Kenyada on 4/12/2008

TAP does not allow a contrived plot get in the way of the dance scenes, which are more than worth the price of admission. Generations of hoofers are allowed to strut their stuff in one of the finest dramatic displays of the art form since Cotton Club. Gregory Hines is in his element as an ex-con reluctant to return to show business, while Sammy Davis Jr., Harold Nicholas and other notables give us a peek into the world of tap dance. Of course, if you want to see the real deal, you’ll rent some of the old classic black and white films that featured the Nicholas Brothers, such as the famed “Stormy Weather.”

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review The weakness of "Tap," as I've suggested, is that almost everything that happens in the movie is borrowed, more or less frankly, from old movie lore. In a way, that's also a strength: This is a musical about musicals, as well as being a tap dance movie about tap dancers. The film about the decline of tap is, itself, a form of resurrection. I don't know how "Tap" will do at the movie box office, but I know that just as it stands, it's the scenario for a Broadway musical that could quite possibly be a very big hit. Of course, that's a cliche, too.
